I was really itching to find a field with hay bales so was delighted and excited to find this one on Saturday! Many of our local fields seem to have been cut and the stubble left to plough in.
I couldn’t get very close to the bales as this field was gated and clearly marked ‘Private Property’ with a variety of warning signs.
There was a small grass verge just outside which contained a large number of crickets happily chirruping and jumping around and I was worried about stepping on them, so I got as close to the gate as I could to take some shots. The field has some interesting topography: it dips down then rises in the distance and curves on the left hand side, following the shape of the main road and also routing around a tree.
